Cory Castell (10x) crosses the strip for his first win in a Sportsman Modified. It would be the fifth week of racing at the Airborne Speedway in the 2021 season on VP Fuels Night and there would be the standard four classes in action with the Sportsman Modifieds, Renegades, 4 Cylinders, and the Limited Sportsman Modified. With all the action from the qualifying heat races in the books, it would be onto the mains for the even. The first one up for the night would be the Hartson Total Opening Renegades after the carnage from the main last week everyone would have their cars back together and have a field of 14 cars. Coming from mid-pack and making a charge in the caution-free 25 lap event Jason McClatchie would get the win in his return to the Renegades after being in the Sportsman Modifieds the last few seasons. He would make the pass on Nathaniel Guay as Guay would start on the pole and the later the race went the loser the car would get and finishing out the top three would be Tylor Terry and Zack Daniels. Next up would be the main event of the evening with the J+S Steel Sportsman Modified for their 30 lap main event. There would be a surprise first-time winner on the night as Cory Castell would start on the pole and get the win for the first-ever Sportsman Modified victory leading wire to wire. Although it would be a wire-to-wire win he would have to hold off Nick Heywood on multiple restarts along with a charging Lonnie Rivers. It definitely would be interesting down the stretch as a late-race multi-car accident would make him have to hold off Nick Heywood for the win. Then it would be the Taylor Rentals 4 Cylinders with a field of 13 cars on track it is one of their bigger shows on the season. There was a 50 dollar bonus put up by Chris Frennier Motorsports to the winner if the 15 lap event went caution-free and for the first 10 laps it looked like it might happen but then in the last five laps they would have four cautions and when the dust settled getting the win making his return to the track after a few years away would be Michael Whalen. Then the last event of the season would be the Chris Frennier Motorsports Limited Sportsman Modified and once again blowing away the field would be the youngster Blayden Arquiett as he continues to amaze the people with his talent at 13 years old. The roar of the engines will return to the Airborne Speedway next weekend with their 4 weekly division plus the return of the Nostalgia Tour. Gallery
